Have it. Wear it. Wash it. #MaskUp

We are calling on you – our volunteers, donors and community members – to donate cloth face masks to support Broadlawns Medical Center and United Way of Central Iowa's Healthier Together - It's a Win for All initiative, or Win for All. 

Central Iowa is experiencing disproportionately elevated COVID-19 infection rates among marginalized communities and underserved populations, illustrating the disparity and barriers still in existence within our community. 

Win for All aims improve access to healthcare, educational information, and preventive resources for those who have been compromised during the COVID-19 health crisis. Wearing a face mask is one of the best ways to minimize the probability of contracting the virus.

Help us provide free access to this important protection by making or purchasing fabric face masks to donate to Win for All. Make a commitment today using the registration form on this page and bring your donated masks to United Way of Central Iowa. Upon registration, we will email you more information and requirements for your donation delivery.  

Donated masks will be dispersed to community organizations that serve marginalized communities in central Iowa.
